Hermes Netburn Attorney, Anthony J. Sbarra, Jr., Presents at DRI Annual Asbestos Medicine Seminar
(New Orleans, LA. November 8, 2013) - Anthony J. Sbarra, Jr., a products liability and civil litigation attorney and shareholder at Hermes, Netburn, O’Connor & Spearing, presented in the Main Session of the annual DRI Asbestos Medicine Seminar at the Marriott Hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana on November 8, 2013. The seminar was attended by over 1200 attorneys and claims professionals, and Tony offered strategies for cross-examining plaintiffs’ controversial causation experts who attempt to testify that “each and every” exposure to asbestos causes mesothelioma, a nearly always fatal asbestos-related disease. Entitled “Confronting Nonsense With Common Sense”, the presentation featured real life examples of effective prior cross-examinations and an update of how various courts have been reacting to the opinion.
In his practice, Tony defends product manufacturers, insurers and others in complex product liability, toxic tort, asbestos, bad faith/consumer protection, automobile and general liability matters. Tony has tried to verdict over thirty Superior Court cases and has arbitrated and mediated hundreds of others.
